Ten Tors Update

The year ten and eleven Ten Tors teams have been training hard over recent weekends. The weather on Dartmoor is often a challenge but none more so than last weekend. Students had to contend with very wet ground conditions due to the recent torrential rain and this was combined with freezing fog giving very limited visibility. The overnight camp was particularly demanding as the temperature dropped below zero leaving a film of ice on the tents in the morning.

Despite this most of the students coped admirably showing their determination to succeed and testing their navigation skills to the limit. The next training is over Easter weekend, here’s hoping for more favourable conditions.
